Cheat-Seeking Missles

Thursday, January 11, 2007


It appears we missed our targets and the rats slithered away:
The US air strikes in Somalia failed to kill any of the three al-Qaeda suspects they targeted, a top US official says.

The three were wanted in connection with the 1998 bombing of US embassies in East Africa and a 2002 attack on Israeli targets in Kenya. Somali officials had earlier reported that one of the men had been killed.
Still, it appears several powerful al Qaeda in Somalia and Islamist Court operatives died in the raids, and the wife of our top target, Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, was arrested by Kenyan authorities while fleeing, along with the wife of one of the other big three Al Qaeda targets.

We certainly disrupted Al Qaeda operations with the raid ... but how do these slimeballs keep avoiding the deaths they so fully deserve?
